Will More Be Added To Pokemon Quest?

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!
I’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Quest lately – I go in spurts with it and you’ve played the game, then you know you can only play for a little bit at a time. A message pops up once in a while that got me wondering about the future of the game.

I’ve noticed this before but have never really thought about it. I was playing the game the other day and a message popped up on the loading screen saying something along the lines of, “Supposedly there are 17 or more types of Pokemon.”
Now, I got excited because I thought that was Nintendo’s way of hinting that they may be adding a new type of Pokemon to the next generation since there’s a new core game in the works for the Switch.
Then I realized that there are already “17 or more” types of Pokemon because there’s 18 total.
So I started thinking again.
Do you think Nintendo is ever going to add onto Pokemon Quest? The game only has 150 Pokemon, the Kanto region, the original Pokemon. So, there’s no dark type Pokemon or Fairy type. Dark was introduced in the Johto region and they’ve been slowly adding each generation of Pokemon to Pokemon Go, so why not do the same thing to Pokemon Quest?
Of course, Pokemon Quest is a pretty small game and there’s not much gameplay to it at all. So I don’t see how or why they would add the other 6 – or 7 – generations to it. I can’t imagine them adding DLC to a free game and adding sequels would be way too much.
It was just a random thought that occurred to me, though. I was curious as to why they said “17 or more types” rather than just saying there’s “18 types.” Then I realized not all the types are in the Kanto region, so there’s that.
Who knows what will happen though. In the meantime, I’m still going to try to beat the game.

What are your thoughts on this? Or am I overthinking things? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I think whether it gets an update will largely depend on how well it performs.
    It came out under the radar with little-to-no fanfare. Seems like it was just a stopgap between now and Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee. I can see a world where Nintendo doesn’t see Quest as being any more than that and leaves it as is.
    However, if its generating microtransactions by the boatload, then an update with more levels and more Pokemon makes a lot of sense.
    Having played way too much of Pokemon Quest in the last month or so, I would be okay to stop once I defeat what I think is the current last level. It’s surprisingly fun for what it is, but I’m also finding it to be too much of a grind and I’ve played the same handful of levels way too many times in order to get strong enough to topple the next big thing. Are you enjoying it so far?

    • Well said. I know Pokemon Quest has done really well with downloads, but I don’t know about the microtransactions. I highly doubt they’ll add more to it, but it was just a random thought.
      I am enjoying the game, but like you, the grind is awful and I’ve played the same levels way too much as well. I should have beaten the game by now with the amount of “explorations” I’ve done. I still plan on seeing it through to the end though.
      Thanks for reading and commenting!
